The Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Content De­velopment and Monitoring Board (NCDMB), Simbi Wabote, on Tuesday, clarified that the board is not an inter­ventionist agency.

Wabote clarified the maid­en edition of the interactive session/open forum with representatives of NCDMB’s project host communities in Bayelsa State held in Yena­goa.

Among those in atten­dance were paramount rul­ers, chairmen and secretaries of Community Development Committees, women and youth group leaders, among others.

He said the explanation became necessary because of the notion in some communi­ties that the board was estab­lished as an interventionist organisation.

Wabote, who was address­ing complaints by some com­munity representatives, fur­ther stated that the NCDMB was not also an oil and gas exploration and production company.

He reiterated that the board’s mandate, according to the law establishing it, is to act as a catalyst for the indus­trialisation of the country’s oil and gas industry while ensuring active local partic­ipation in the industry.
